Nags Head, NC

A week ago, I travelled to the Outer Banks of North Carolina to photograph a wedding with photographer Raymond Goodman.  For those of you who don't know me, the beach is definitely one of my "happy places" so I was more than eager to head to the coast for this wedding.  I stayed in this old, quirky motel called the Sea Foam Motel and my room looked right out over the ocean!

One thing that I love about the beach (aside from the ocean, of course) is the beach houses!  I love driving around and looking at all the different colors, sizes, and shapes of the homes that line the shore.

Oh, by the way... Can I just say how much I love Adobe Photoshop CS6?!  I finally upgraded from CS4 (yes, I was a little behind) and I cannot believe how amazing CS6 is.  And I also have this awesome program called RadLab.  All of the images in this post were processed using it; it's so much fun!  You guys should definitely go check it out.

Well that's all for now, but I should be posting images from the wedding soon!

"Tune in, turn off, drop out, drop in, switch off, switch on, and explode!"

Hello everyone!

It has been a while since I actually typed out an update so here you go:

The past three months up here in New York City have flown by.  I'm leaving bright and early this coming Tuesday, June 12 and while I'm excited to go home and see everyone, I'm pretty reluctant to leave this magical city behind.  I had such a great experience learning under the amazing photographer Anna Wolf and I feel so unbelievably lucky to have been given the opportunity to work so closely with someone whose work I admire so much!

So a lot has been happening: I had three photo shoots in the past seven days, two of which were only a day apart; our music video for House of Fools finally premiered; and on an unrelated note, I bleached and dyed my hair!  I have met and worked with some incredible people who share the same passion as me to create a beautiful image and I hope to work with them again in the future.  So sit back and stay tuned for some more photo posts!

Now, I have less than 48 hours left to explore the city a bit more and then it's time to pack up, move back home for a few months, and graduate.  I cannot wait to see everyone and do lots of shooting in North Carolina.

Until next time!
